Po­lice of­fi­cer wounded in ram­page leaves hos­pi­tal

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - NEWS -

PHILADEL­PHIA >> Both po­lice of­fi­cers wounded in a gun­man’s shoot­ing ram­page that killed a woman and wounded sev­eral other peo­ple have been dis­charged from the hos­pi­tal.

Sgt. Sylvia Young was wel­comed by a line of dozens of uni­formed po­lice of­fi­cers salut­ing her as she left Penn Pres­by­te­rian Hos­pi­tal, her arm in a sling, and went to a ve­hi­cle that was then es­corted by mo­tor­cy­cle of­fi­cers.

Author­i­ties said 25-yearold Nicholas Glenn am­bushed the 19-year vet­eran as she sat in her pa­trol car in west Philadel­phia on Fri­day night, wound­ing her in the left shoul­der, arm and torso. Glenn then fired into a bar and into a car, killing 25-year-old Sara Salih, who was hit seven times, and wounded 56-year-old Univer­sity of Penn­syl­va­nia po­lice of­fi­cer Ed Miller be­fore he was shot and killed by other of­fi­cers in an al­ley, po­lice said.

Miller, re­leased Sun­day after treat­ment for gun­shot wounds to his hip and an­kle, told re­porters at the Fra­ter­nal Or­der of Po­lice’s Monday Night Foot­ball party that he was fine and was pri­mar­ily con­cerned about the other vic­tims.

“I guess I’m lucky. All I can think about is I’m very lucky,” he said.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors said Glenn left a “ram­bling” note that ex­pressed ha­tred for law en­force­ment and a pro­ba­tion of­fi­cer. He fired at least 51 shots dur­ing the ram­page and was armed with more am­mu­ni­tion, author­i­ties said.
